Is is possible to Sync jobs started in Trimble Access 2018 (i.e. in the Field) to Trimble Connect?
There seems to be no option to "push" the Project & Job on those not started in the office?
Trimble Access provides up to three Connect Business Licenses per current Software Maintenance Agreement. Once a user is assigned a Connect Business license it is possible to use an unlimited number of projects with Trimble Connect.
The Upgrade Trimble ID link at https://connect.trimbleaccess.com/ includes information for assigning the Trimble Connect Business Licenses.
TCC cannot be used with Trimble Access 2018.
A discontinuation notice has been sent out to all Trimble Access, TCC organization Sitemanagers advising that they should transition to using Trimble Connect prior to August 2019
The Projects and Jobs page in the Trimble Access online help provides this answer.
Project and job creation
Who creates the project and jobs and how they do this depends on your organization. The options are:
Projects and jobs are created in the office using Trimble Sync Manager and sent to the cloud, from which they are downloaded to the controller. Project and job data on the controller can be uploaded to the cloud at any time.
If required, new jobs can be created locally on the controller and then uploaded to the cloud.
Projects and jobs are created locally on the controller.
In this scenario, project and job data cannot be uploaded to the cloud because the project does not reside in Trimble Connect.
A shortened version is, projects need to be created using Trimble Sync Manager. Once this is done Jobs can be created in that project on the controller and uploaded.
Is it correct that Trimble Connect limits sync privileges to 1 project for Trimble Access users that have a current Software Maintenance agreements (unlike TCC)?
If so, is it possible to use TCC on Trimble Access 2018?
Thank you very much for the information Chay.
Hopefully the last question:
It looks like Connect Business for Trimble Access needs to be assigned by our local distributor, is that correct?
Yes, the distributor needs to assign a Connect Business administrator against your Trimble Access software. This is done for each device covered by software maintenance. Once this has been done the administrator can assign Connect Business licenses to whoever they wish.
